Organic EOS Lip Balm is The Balm That Makes You Smile

To create a multi-million dollar sensation, it has to be imaginative, unique and universal, and that was the mission for Mehra and Teller when they designed the fantastic EOS lip balms. EOS stands for the Evolution of Smooth and with this concept in mind, Mehra founded the Lip balm company that was to become the top lip balm producer for women across the globe. Seven years ago, EOS was only in Walgreen Drug stores, but today, it is a $240 million company available on Walmart and target and many other stores and its influence is only growing.

Until EOS lip balm hit the market, lip balms were either Blistex or Chapstick and the variety of inexpensive brands that subsidized the market. Mehra and Teller saw that there was a place in this industry for a spectacular product, so they used their imagination to create a natural, organic, pleasing and tasty lip balm. They appealed to females age 25-35, and they did it at a comparable price.

This flavorful, natural lip balm in an orbital container soon began to be the lip balm in many girl’s purses. Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera, and Kim Kardashian were only a few of the celebrities that chose the organic EOS as their favorite lip balm. Mehra and Teller were using innovative concepts to recreate the brand; they took the established lip balm and made it fun and flavorful.

But, they did not want EOS to be taken as a fad, so in an effort to prevent that from happening, they are making the Evolution of Smooth story an open book for their customers. This story is designed to open up communication between EOS and its customers. Mehra and Teller focus on an emotional connection with the users, instead of making it just another product. The motto they chose fits their intention, “The lip balm that makes you smile.”


Christopher Burch, a Creator, Entrepreneur and Investor

When it comes to technology and fashion, both have a wow factor in them. Together they have grown over the years bringing on board newer selling ideas. Taking a look at the technology end and it unfolds the music experience and its growth from the boom box in the 70s, the cassette player in the 80s, the Walkman experience enjoyed in the 90s and fast forward to the iPod wave. The change never stops. Such is the case in the fashion world and some designers have worked the idea of literally fashioning technology in their designs. One such designer is Anouk Wipprechyt, a Dutch national who through her playful experiments, is recognized for her avant-garde masterpieces. Some of her works include, self-painting dresses, drink-making collections, the DareDroid as well as the Psuedomorphs.


Away from the literal merging of fashion and technology and enter the world of protection and alternative use of clothing. Terese Alstin and Anna Haupt have designed a cutting-edge safety invention, the cyclist airbags. The neatly crafted neck-wear design is fashioned to promote safety. In the same spirit, one Kevin Cannon and Ashwin Rajan have developed the Frontline Gloves meant for use by firefighters as protective gear. Interestingly, there are some creators who have stepped out to redefine clothing as more than just an outfit. Soledad Martin is one such designer. Her latest work, in the prototype stage, shoes that generate energy to charge a mobile phone while running or while walking. Truly such creations are inspiring. Imagine a world where both industries work together and the possibilities are endless.


With such a deep look at the blend between technology and fashion and presenting it to readers and investors alike, Christopher Burch has created a niche for himself as a writer, an entrepreneur and an investor. The 63 year old businessman, capitalized on his love for branding and transformed it to a worthwhile investment, with keen interest in real estate, fashion and technology. His business skills started early and thanks to the partnership with his brother, their brainchild, Eagles Eye Apparel grew to a net worth of $165 million before it was sold to Swire Group. He later founded, Burch Creative Capital that boasts of well-known brands including Poppin, Cocoon9, ED by Ellen DeGeneres and Nihiwatu.


Aside from business, Christopher Burch actively participates in charitable endeavors. In this spirit, he served as a board member in the Child Welfare League, China Association of Social Work, Sumba Foundation, NYU Langone and the Orthopedic Foundation of the Rothman Institute. Chris has proved to be remarkable as a writer, investor and entrepreneur.

Dr. Avi Weisfogel transforms sleep apnea treatment model

Dr. Avi Weisfogel, the founder of Dental Sleep Masters, has been instrumental in the treatment of sleep apnea. This insidious and poorly understood disease has long plagued populations across the globe. Today, thanks to Dr. Weisfogel, medicine is many steps closer to the complete eradication of this scourge from the face of the Earth.

The Great Killer Chameleon

Many diseases have been given the name The Great Imitator. These diseases share signs and symptoms with other, usually less malignant diseases. This makes them particularly difficult to diagnose and very dangerous, as in the case with diseases like pancreatic cancer, because any delay in treatment leads to almost certain death.

Similarly, sleep apnea might be termed the Great Killer Chameleon. Rather than merely taking on the signs and symptoms of various lethal diseases, it actually takes their form. People with long-standing sleep apnea are all but guaranteed to actually develop disease states like heart attack, stroke, diabetes and kidney failure. Once these diseases set in, it’s generally too late to treat the underlying sleep apnea.

Making things even worse, until Dr. Avi Weisfogel’s program began changing the way that this terrible ailment is diagnosed, over 90 percent of sufferers didn’t even know they had the disease. Since untreated sleep apnea is tantamount to a death sentence, these patients could benefit enormously from early diagnosis and intervention through aggressive oral appliance therapy.

Dr. Weisfogel realized that there was a potentially huge market that was being virtually ignored by the medical establishment. Through his innovative seminars and courses, Dr. Weisfogel has taught dentists the early warning signs, symptoms and risk factors for sleep apnea. These include such seemingly benign complaints as excessive fatigue, advanced age and excess adiposity of the neck area. Certain abnormalities of mouth structures such as the larynx and trachea can also predispose patients to this fatal disorder.

Having enlightened hundreds of dentists, Dental Sleep Masters has also led to millions of dollars in new oral appliance sales. Some dentists have had such success with the sleep dentistry model that they’ve actually been able to quit their dental practices to focus on sleep medicine.

The Greyhound Diaries is a first hand account of the travels of Doug Levitt across America by way of Greyhound line buses. Published as a book, the Greyhound Diaries is a journal of what Doug Levitt experienced during his travel by bus across forgotten towns, rural communities and large cities in the United States.

Doug also wanted to travel and partake in an adventure. It would be an adventure that was totally different that any one he had experienced so far in his middle class upbringing and professional career.


Looking back at the Great Depression and the Works Progress Administration, Doug gleaned inspiration for his Greyhound Diaries adventure from the artists who were hired to cover the struggles and daily life of American during the Great Depression. Doug would be just like these artists. Although, he would be covering a different period. It would be the great recession and the years leading up to it that he would be covering. Doug’s medium would be words, photographs and later on music.


The culmination of all of the travels, that span over a decade is the book called the Greyhound Diaries. Doug Levitt has also produced a music album called the Greyhound Diaries LP which describe what Doug Levitt has experienced on his travels throughout the country through music. Mr. Levitt has even began touring various theaters in the country to speak on his journey and perform the songs he composed.


Doug Levitt was born in Washington D.C. and raised in an affluent middle class family. After completing college, Mr. Levitt went on to become a news reporter and then a foreign correspondent for several news organizations before coming home and starting his Greyhound Diaries project.

One Trick For Traveling Vineyard Wine Guides To Drive Up Sales

Wine guides that work for Traveling Vineyard have the life. They get to travel around and attend different wine tasting parties. Of course, they are in charge of the events.

They are the ones guiding groups of friends through the wine tasting process in order to sell wines. At the end of the party, these wine guides leave ordering information with the attendees in order to sell wines. Every wine purchased from the wine tasting event earns the wine guide a commission. These lucky people literally get paid to party.

There are a few very good selling tactics that I wine guide can use in order to drive up sales. One of which is to make the wine tasting event a competition. The competition is not amongst the attendees but amongst the wines themselves. Every single one of the friends attending the wine tasting event can vote on their favorite wines. It turns the event into a sort of race.


What happens when you turn the event into a competition is that the attendees start to talk about their favorite wines with each other. They begin to articulate and defend their decisions. This ties them intimately to their favorite flavors, regions and varietals. When a person feels connected to a particular product, they are more likely to purchase that product.

It is almost like watching a romantic movie where a character has the choice between two different lovers. The audience splits up into one team against another. This makes a group of friends who are divided among team lines more likely to go see the movie together in the theaters. This kind of connection to the movie and characters drives up ticket sales. You can use this exact same strategy to drive up wine sales among your friends, families and even with strangers. You may even see somebody order a wine just to give it to one of their friends to prove why it is the best wine on earth.

It is this kind of excitement for wine that can make a wine guide for Traveling Vineyard a lot of money. And it is all in good fun.
